Richard Donner is one of the greatest directors alive today.
Other directors may have made better films than him, but there are few that have made a range of multi genre classic films that can equal his achievements.
He has made classic titles in genres including action, horror, comedy, family films, and of course, the superhero genre.
It is sometimes hard to believe that `Superman`, `The Omen`, `Lethal Weapon`, and `The Goonies`, each title a genre trend setter, could all come from one person. He even successfully had a go at Christmas movies, with the smash hit `Scrooged`.
With `16 Blocks` being released last year, I truly believe Richard Donner still has more future cinematic greats up his sleeve to make us cheer way into the next decade or two.
